FCA India today launched the Made-in-India Jeep Compass at a starting price of Rs 14.95 lakh (ex-Delhi). Deliveries of the vehicle will begin nationwide on August 6, 2017. The Company is set to expand its dealer network to 60 by the end of this calendar year, according to a company statement.

The Jeep Compass is manufactured in FCA’s joint venture manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, near Pune, and is made of 65% locally sourced components.

Kevin Flynn – President and Managing Director, FCA India said, “We decided to advance the price announcement so that potential customers can finalize their purchase decisions. We will start retails on August 6, 2017. Analyzing our pre-bookings data it has made sense for us to prioritize the deliveries of diesel manual transmission variants. We will deliver petrol automatic transmission variants closer to Diwali.”

The Jeep Compass range comes in three premium trims – Sport, Longitude and Limited (top of the line), and in a combination of ten (10) variants. The Sport comes with ‘Black’ upholstery while customers have a choice of Dual Tone cloth or leather upholstery respectively, in the Longitude and Limited trims.


The UConnect Infotainment system, comes with a 7-inch touch screen High Definition (HD) display and Integrated Control Stack that facilitates hands-free phone calls and text messages, cabin temperature and air flow control, Lights and Brakes adjustment, music and integrated voice command functions.

The UConnect Infotainment system offers Apple Car Play and Android Auto making the hands-free experience more user-friendly and up to date with the latest technology available in the market.

The Sport and Longitude trims are available in two-wheel drive (4×2) only while the top of the line trim, Limited comes with choice of 4×2 as well as four-wheel drive (4×4) options.

The Limited is equipped with Jeep’s legendary Jeep Active Drive with Selec Terrain Traction Management System that lets the driver chose from four terrain modes – Auto, Mud, Sand and Snow.

Flynn added, “We developed a pricing strategy that could help us keep the product premium, yet attainable, with absolutely no compromise on quality of materials, comfort, safety and drivability, and make worthy impact in the highly aspirational and demanding SUV marketplace.”

The Jeep Compass resembles its bigger and more luxurious sibling, the Grand Cherokee. The front fascia especially keeps up with the Grand Cherokee design theme but a closer look will reveal Jeep’s seven-slot grille, now more contemporary styled.

The Compass also inherits the trapezoidal wheel arches, which can be found on every Jeep product built since the 1940s. The front grille and the squared off wheel arches retain those subtleties of Jeep’s illustrious history even in the present day.
